Red Wines for under $15...that are actually worth drinking!

As requested from some of my fellow drinkers, I have compiled a list of wines that are affordable and actually good to drink, where possible I have listed where you can get them (if not the big stores) and the price you should be paying for them!

The Maîtresse Pinot Noir - Aaron got me this little gem for my birthday this year, and as much as I am not a fan of Pinot... this is a pretty good one for about $15.20!

Thorn and Clarke do some pretty decent wines and the "Sandpiper" range at $15 is the cheapest of the bunch.  In the Reds they do a Shiraz or a Cabernet Sauvignon and both of them, apart from the Shiraz being a touch unbalanced (bit too much acid) they are both nice wines.

WARNING!!!  This wine is truly excellent!  A Spanish blend of Shiraz and Tempranillo and should be $13...  The only problem with it is that I find it really hard to find, it's not in the big places, they do often have it at independent stores, like IGA, or Cellarbrations, depends on how clued in their wine buyers are.  The link to their website from here does have a list of stockists, and I truly hope that you can find this wine.

O'Leary Walker is a great Clare Valley winery and their Riesling (like most from the region is spectacular). The "Blue Cutting Road" Cabernet Merlot is their $15 red blend and it is pretty good week night drink!  I have found it at Dan's for about $13, at the winery it's $15 and I wouldn't pay more than that. I'll buy it every so often, but to tell the truth their more expensive wines (not that much more) are better value than this one.

Gemtree Dragon's Blood Shiraz- I got a fantastic deal on this 2 for the price of 1... Its a ripper of a shiraz. Actually all of the Gemtree wines qre worth a try.

The next two wines are from St Hallett's winery in the Barossa... both are under $15 and very in the Barossa style... big, rich and best had with food.  The first is my favourite "Faith"  and I have faith that you to will enjoy it!

Wynn's Coonawarra Shiraz is a wine that year after year it is exactly the same... just the way Foster's like to make their wines.  There is nothing particularly exciting or different about it, but in a pinch it's worth the $15

I have spent a lot of my time at Tahbilk Winery in Nagambie... and I am a huge fan of a lot of their wines... but the two main picks are this Shiraz and their Marsanne (white wine) If you haven't already tried them... I suggest you go out and get them now!

Hereford Shiraz from Heathcote is a great little find of mine if I do say so myself.  Just scraping into this category at $15 it's a good winter drinker!
